On the 24th of May 2019, ASSTRA successfully completed the mid-term check, at the presence of the EU project officer Mercedes Leguey-Jimenez. The mid-term check is the only official meeting in the MSCA project where a project officer from the EU is present to evaluate the progresses of the project. The meeting, held at ABB Corporate Research in Baden (CH), was the first plenary meeting where the complete ASSTRA team was present. The two ESRs have been recruited since more than half a year, and they are now getting familiar with their research projects and with both the environment where they are going to pursue their PhDs: Andrea and Andreas are currently hosted by ABB for one of their three secondments in industrial environment.
The mid-term check was preceded by the Supervisory Board Meeting, held at ABB on the previous day.
